URMIA Opened My Eyes
I can’t say enough about how the resources of URMIA have facilitated my success in Higher Education Risk Management. Though when beginning my position at Chapman University, I had over 25 years of experience in the field of insurance and 15 in Risk Management, none of it had been in higher education. While there are many components of a risk management program that are shared across industry, my participation in URMIA opened my eyes to the challenges unique to the field of Higher Education risk management. The collegial and sharing nature of this community is unique and provides an invaluable resource. The people and what they share, the conferences, and the URMIA web network are invaluable aids to success. Eventually, I decided it was time to give back, first serving on the Communications Committee, then co-chairing that Committee, and now serving on the URMIA Board.
